    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    This is what I thought at first but there is only about an inch of slippage then the shift lever moves. And moves back to original Park position when moved.

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    I finally got a chance to check out my problem. I checked the trans end of cable while Wifey changed from P to Low. There is a hesitation in the cable movement until the shifter is almost in Neutral then it moves into Reverse. then have to shift further to 2nd before it moves enough to actually...

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    Thank you for the link. My problem is a little different. I have been busy at work and haven't had time to check the Envoy yet. But numerous searches here and Google all point to the same problem in your link. Mine is still shifting into and out of Park and going into gear ok. But when I shift...

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    Last week I was at a street where I was parked facing uphill, no handbrake on, just in park with engine off. After about 15 minutes I fired it back up but it seemed like it didn't want to come out of park. With a little extra effort it did release from park but I had only neutral instead of...

    NEED HELP Larger tires

    I have an '02 Envoy SLT and the tires, 245/65R17, are almost worn out. I have a larger set 265/70R17 and was wondering if they would fit without scraping somewhere. The rear would probably be ok but wondering more about the front. The larger ones are about 2 inches taller so a 1 inch radius...

    '02 Envoy SLT rear bumper impact bar.

    Has anyone ever replaced their rear inner bumper? Mine just failed inspection because of too much rust on the impact bar. I have found a replacement but was wondering could the impact bar be replaced without removing the plastic outer cover? Looks like the plastic part attaches to the impact bar...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Mine works great. Fuel mileage is very good for the size of the vehicle. Made a trip from Nova Scotia to Ontario when we bought it and after resetting the DIC it showed an average of 26.5 MPG (Imperial gallon). I don't think the Envoy ever did that well. Beautiful truck to drive.

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Thanks Bud. I think Rock auto is my best bet too. By the way, they are both gone. Been driving her a little easy lately. ;) Bought a '12 Acadia for my wife 3 years ago. It had no license plate holder on the front bumper (we only have a rear plate in Nova Scotia). Wife wanted to put a plate with...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Link to rear upper control arms from Rock Auto... Edited for my dumbness... after looking closer at the pics in the website the non-air and the air ride arms look about the same. Earlier I looked at the lower arm. It is definitely beefier. My bad. But the prices are way lower than local...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Thanks for the advice. But it's the non-air ride arms that look beefier. I wasn't sure if they were interchangeable. My local repair guy is pretty good to work with. He even suggested I call around to find the best price. I've supplied parts in the past without problems. He did say that the...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Hey Guys, haven't been around lately but am now in need of some expert advice. I have a 2002 Envoy SLT with 235,000 KM on it and it just failed inspection. I need both left and right rear upper control arms. Both are rusted and broken away from the frame end. While checking for parts I'm seeing...

    Help with engine noise, video included

    Sounds like power steering, like xavierny25 said. But mine makes a whine sound since it was changed several years ago during a steering rack change. But mine is a higher pitched sound. Could it be your alternator with a bad bearing?

    More codes.

    I have checked for leaks in the past and can't find one. Possibly could be a bad rad cap realising too much pressure. But when I tried to clear the codes yesterday they came right back. After adding coolant I've had it around the block and warmed up twice and still running well and no codes. I'm...
